6 luxury locations to live in Mallorca (part 2)
The glamorous marina in Puerto Portals is ideal for boat owners, but also for visitors if you just want to see where jetsetters and celebrities moor their boats. Puerto Portals is full of a diverse, international community, designer boutiques and yacht agents and has enticing homes close to the harbor. While there are a handful of seafront villas, the majority of real estate in Puerto Protals consists of luxury apartments and penthouses.
Sóller and Port de Sóller
Both Sóller and Port de Sóller have a distinctly French atmosphere, especially during the Saturday market. Enjoy the feeling of partial seclusion thanks to the surrounding mountains, while still having easy access to and from the town. The area is known for offering a range of activities throughout the year to keep you busy. Property choices include seafront apartments, historic buildings, beautiful townhouses, modernist homes and hilltop estates. It’s also worth taking a look at the authentic Spanish streetcars that regularly connect the two towns.
Son Vida is one of the more rural areas of Mallorca with architect-designed villas, exclusive estates and country properties with unbeatable views. Son Vida offers its residents maximum privacy and is the perfect area for real estate if you are looking for a large home away from the hustle and bustle of Mallorca’s urban areas. While there are also traditional-style homes and a handful of apartments in Son Vida, the majority of the sought-after properties are ultra-modern and equipped with the latest technology.
